Re: Mandrake patched perl-GTK2 in a bad direction?

I've got this letter from a tester of one of my program - who uses perl-GTK2
and the needed modules from CPAN:

the line:
    $splash_win{label} = new Gtk2::Label(_("Loading GPRS Easy Connect"));
   $splash_win{label} = new Gtk2::Label("Loading GPRS Easy Connect");

I used at first Glade(1) for the design and after I rewrited the code to GTK2,
maybe the GTK2 doesn't like the underline character in this case?

_() is typically an internationalization function, which looks up strings in a language database and returns the one for the current language setting. This is not part of gtk2-perl, and i can't find anything in mandrake's rpm patches that add it. Perhaps you need to use the Gettext module?

2, He wrote me this too:

I think set_uposition was removed from Gtk2-perl, but the Mandrake's
version has some patch for backward compatibility.
I think using set_uposition it will work only with Mandrake!
I'm using Glib, Gtk2 and Gnome2 from CPAN!

Is he right??? I'm using Mandrake now while making my program and there wasn't chance to test under other distrib. Do I have to rewrite all code using VBOX
and HBOX????

Patch9 in the mandrake RPM adds the deprecated function gtk_widget_set_uposition(). This was deprecated as of gtk+ 2.0.0 and therefore is not part of gtk2-perl. set-uposition

I don't recall why the mandrake rpms include it (Thierry?), but i believe it was part of porting old code.

The Gtk-Perl to Gtk2-Perl porting guide ( ) says:

Gtk::Widget::set_uposition() has been deprecated and is not bound anymore; use Gtk2::Window::move(), Gtk2::Fixed::put(), or Gtk2::Layout::put() instead.

You imply that you're not using HBox or VBox, so i presume you're doing manual layout with a Gtk2::Fixed, so i think Gtk2::Fixed::put() is what you want.

That's it! It's one thing for a ghost to scare my children, but it's another to play my theremin!
